Thankful Thursday

Those who put their hope in the LORD will not be disappointed

~The season of Lent, when we prepare our hearts and minds for remembering Christ's death on the cross and celebrate the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ!

~That God is in EVERY tiny detail of our lives.  He is sweetly and quickly carrying us through this adoption.  We are waiting on USCIS approval (immigration) so we can file our dossier with EE!  Keep praying it is working!!!

~Our amazing total from our iPad giveaway, we are so humbly grateful for everyone; those we know and those we don't who gave so that we can bring our daughter home.

~Alayna is walking more

~The sibling bond between Aidan and Alayna continues to bring me joy.  He is the first person she wants to see and hug in the morning and the last person she wants to see and hug at night.  Love!!!  When he is off to school she bids him farewell but always asks for Aidan at naptime and I assure her he will be home after she gets up.  She joyfully sings, " Aidan, Aidan, Aidan" as the bus is coming down the street!

~Aidan begins spring break tomorrow and with Alayna's new "preschool" schedule at toddler class Aidan and I get to have a date morning to ourselves.

What are you thankful for this week? Please leave a comment and share a thankful or two I love reading them.

I'm just grateful! Grateful that when it seems like things are going to blow, that they always calm down right before I lose my mind! Sounds like a strange thing to be grateful for, but this week, it is!!

I just love how she is watching his bus pull away :) So sweet. When I drop my older girls at school, Ella always says "bye sissy" as we are pulling away. Don't know if I have already said this or not, but I love how your header has Dariya in it now :)

I am first,so thankful that the journey towards Dariya continues to be sprinkled with the most amazing blessings,from the most incredible loving community, that continues to covers you with their prayers and support.

I am so thankful that Miss Zoey has arrived at her 4th birthday.What a road it has been but her courage and will to survive has inspired and carried us all and God's beautiful grace has covered us and sustained us ... so much to be thankful for!
